Watch: The Trusted Unveil Music Video For "Rebel Song"

Southend-on-Sea indie pop/rock four-piece The Trusted have unveiled the video for their latest single "Rebel Song".

The song is part of our current playlist and came out in April. Grab it here.

“‘Rebel Song’ is about the resistance and finding beauty through being defiant,” The Trusted’s Dave Batchelor said. “I think we are all pre-programmed to fight for what we believe in, it’s a part of what makes us human. We are all rebelling against something, whether that be against some form of discrimination, political ideals, or even ourselves. Everyday we are fighting and I think there is something quite wonderful about that.”

Watch: Trampolene Premiere New Single/Video "Shoot The Lights"

Welsh indie rock band Trampolene have premiered the video for their catchy new single "Shoot The Lights".

The song is taken from the band's upcoming third studio album 'Love No Less Than A Queen', produced by Mike Moore (Baxter Dury/Liam Gallagher), Richard Jackson (Super Furry Animals) & Jason Stafford (Albion Rooms) and mixed by Dave Emery (Arcade Fire/Elbow), set to be released on August 20. Pre-order your copy here.

Jack Jones on ‘Shoot The Lights’ “ for me it’s about when you’re scared and trapped indoors together with someone you love, for what feels like forever, it’s touch you need, life you want, and shoot the lights when you dare.”

The video for ‘Shoot The Lights’ was directed by Roger Sargent (Sleaford Mods/The Libertines/Fat White Family) and filmed on a psychedelic trip around London and Roger’s front room. Roger explains the idea behind the video“ it’s about coming out of lockdown, with all the bright lights being tantalisingly close, both figuratively and literally and the toll it’s taken on everyone’s mental health”.

New Entry: MCRAE Share New Single "How To Start A Fire"

Manchester indie rock/punk band MCRAE have shared their new single "How To Start A Fire".

Coming quickly off the back of previous single ‘Lucy’, how to start a fire draws more from the band’s punk influences, while still retaining a distinctly poppy feeling through its shimmering guitars. 

Described by the band as being “a back and forth in every sense of the word, lyrically it touches on the idyllic modern relationship - musically it boasts big riffs and catchy melodies plus potentially the biggest outro we’ve written!” 

‘How To Start A Fire’ is the perfect embodiment of MCRAE’s sound; a deft combination of snarling punk cynicism juxtaposed against blissful pop optimism.

Watch: Roadkeeper Air New Single/Video "Take the L"

Texas indie rock/psych/shoegaze four-piece Roadkeeper have aired the video for their new single "Take the L".

The song, produced and mixed by the band’s vocalist John H, was written about the ongoing immigrant and refugee crisis at the US/Mexico border.

Speaking about the writing process they say: “The song started out as an acoustic voice memo, which is very rare for us. The demo version was heavily inspired by David Crosby’s newer albums, his cadence and the way he integrates lyrics and melodies. We also were jamming a lot of Joey Bada$$ at the time, and the way he and his producers would refocus the tracks between the instrumental and vocal depending on what was happening in the songs. We produced and mixed the track ourselves remotely in the shed behind John’s house in Austin, with some initial pieces recorded pre-pandemic at John’s old attic in east Texas.”
